Mike Montgomery on a limited pitch count Friday for Kansas City

Kansas City Royals pitcher Mike Montgomery will throw between 40-45 pitches in his start on Friday.

What It Means:

Montgomery is making his first Royals appearances after being traded from the Chicago Cubs earlier in the week. The pitcher was serving in a relief role for the Cubs and is not stretched out yet. Brian Flynn or Jorge Lopez is expected to piggyback off Montgomery Friday night.

Our models project Montgomery for 10.1 FanDuel points in 3 innings of work on Friday.
